Johann Gottlob Krueger (1715-1759)
Halle: C.H. Hemmerde, 1744
Johann Krueger was Professor of Medicine at Halle, and later at Branschweig. He was fairly well-known in his day as an electrical experimenter. He was one of the few persons to whom E.G. von Kleist communicated his invention of the Leyden jar (the electrical condensor). Krueger’s interest in electricity was largely in possible medical applications, as suggested in this lecture. This printing of his lecture is unrecorded. The first recorded printing is dated 1745.
